Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Why does it cost so much and why don't you take insurance??
A: Not to brag, but our clinicians are so skilled and highly trained, we actually don't have to take insurance to fill our caseloads. We don't take just any case and the ones we do, we give it our ALL. We are totally worth it. For insurance sake, know that PSYCHē is an "Out-of-Network" provider which means we don't take insurance directly. Now that doesn't mean you can't use your insurance. Whooooa...hold up? Bear with me. Because we chose long ago to "opt out" of participation in insurance, we have saved time and effort that we continue to put into YOUR care. But the really cool thing is, for most of our providers, you can file with insurance and get reimbursed a substantial amount of money (60% or more in some cases). Just ask us about how to submit a superbill--we're glad to help. We've also had great luck with writing a letter on your behalf explaining to the insurance company that we are basically the only ones around offering this level of care! Did you know we are the ONLY ones within 200 miles with a Board Certified DBT therapist on staff? You may even seek prior approval and get the whole thing covered as an "In Network" service even though it's not! We've seen it happen more than once.
Q: How do I make a payment?
A: We require payment to be made online or via phone for all first time appointments. This minimizes the likelihood that we will be targeted by an axe murderer and also and holds your time slot--cause it's already paid for! We use Paypal, but you don't have to have a Paypal account to make it work. Click the "Buy Now" button at the bottom of any page and you will be redirected to the PayPal website. Type in the cost of your session and follow the prompts. Not sure about the rate of your session? Call Lauren at 615.274.8400 (as usual).
Q: How do I get to your office?
A: Call us! Or if you hate making that call, you can find a map to our location HERE. You may also call Lauren (of course) at 615.274.8400 for personalized directions.
Q: How much is each session?
A: That depends on which therapist you choose, how much expertise and experience they have, and whether they are in training or are fully licensed. Check the "Staff" section for more information on each clinician's rates. Group rates also vary. We usually have students-in-training with limited slots for reduced rate treatment ($25-$100)--call or email to find out if there's an opening.
